Creating a new cutlery, from the original and innovative design without distorting its functionality, is one of the toughest challenges for a designer. Ettore Sottsass’s cutleries for salad of Nuovo Milano series are an example of how the challenge can be won.
The Nuovo Milano service was designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1987 by revisiting a traditional cutlery model in a contemporary fashion. The objects of this series are characterised by soft and rounded shapes which are extremely pleasing to the touch like those of a stone smoothened by the sea. Nuovo Milano is one of the most complete services in the Alessi catalog, offering a selection of 26 different types of cutleries. It is made of stainless steel and created from Sottsass’s desire to design all the objects necessary for a “Beautiful Table”; this collection of cutleries is a typical contemporary design, approved by XV Premio Compasso d’Oro.
